About Us / Outreach Clinics
The Heart Center at Children's is the largest and most comprehensive pediatric and adult congenital cardiac center in the Heartland. We provide the majority of all heart surgeries, catheterizations and care to children in Nebraska. We also see patients from western Iowa, Kansas, North and South Dakota.
We treat patients with a myriad of heart conditions, many of which are unique to infants and children, including:
• Congenital heart disease (conditions that are present before birth),
• Acquired heart disease (conditions caused by problems after birth),
• Heart murmurs (most of which are not caused by a heart condition),
• Irregular heart rhythms and chest pain (most of which are not caused by a heart condition)
Congenital heart disease, which refers to structural problems of the heart and vessels, comprises approximately 90 percent of our cardiac surgical cases.
To better serve patients throughout Nebraska, South Dakota and western Iowa, we offer outreach clinics in the following communities:
• Columbus, Neb.
